Overview

In this now-legendary graphic novel series that serves as the inspiration for the hit AMC television series, Jesse Custer was just a small-town preacher in Texas... until his congregation was flattened by powers beyond his control and the Preacher became imbued with abilities beyond anyone's understanding.
 
Now possessed by Genesis—the unholy coupling of an angel and demon—Jesse holds Word of God, an ability to command anyone or anything with a mere utterance. And he’ll use this power to hold the Lord accountable for the people He has forsaken.
 
From the ashes of a small-town church to the bright lights of New York City to the backwoods of Louisiana, Jesse Custer cuts a righteous path across the soul of America in his quest for the divine—an effort that will be met by every evil that Heaven and Earth can assemble. Joined by his gun-toting girlfriend, Tulip, and the hard-drinking Irish vampire, Cassidy, Jesse will stop at nothing to fulfill his quest to find God.

The creative powerhouse team of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon bring readers on a violent and riotous journey across the country in this award-winning Vertigo series, beginning with Preacher Book One. Collects issues #1-12.

The book kept me entrenched in it the whole way through. I was very excited to see a hard cover version of this glorious book. Back in the mid to late 90's, Preacher was my first experience with Garth Ennis and I have tried to follow him ever since. Preacher was the first graphic novel that I read that was actually graphic. It was the kind of violence, language, and sexuality that I only ever saw in movies. It was as I saw it, "Finally a comic for an older demographic!" If I had to find something wrong with the writing, I would say the characters that were supposed to be Deep South characters used a bit too much European English slang. Even this I did not mind all that much, it just stood out is all.

I read the Garth Ennis version of the Punisher and loved it. This hasn't disappointed me either. I love the art, and haven't been able to put the story down.

I heard about the show. The first volume was weird but kind of interesting.

Funny, violent, disturbing and dramatic (sometimes all at once) Preacher is one of the greatest comics ever made
